Kendall Jenner Pens ‘I Grew Up Too Fast’ In New Wall Street Journal Column


Model and reality TV star, Kendall Jenner pens an open column discussing her early years. The Wall Street Journal gathered six “luminaries” to weigh in on the topic of “Youth”.

The new face of Estée Lauder penned a short visual into what life is like for the 19 year old star:

“I feel like I grew up too fast a long time ago. Having older siblings, you grow up around adults, so you mature more quickly. I saw my sisters and parents working every day, so I was pretty much brought up to be a workaholic. But I just turned 19 a couple weeks ago, and I’m scared to be 20—it’s the first step out of being a teenager. My sister Khloé always says to me and my younger sister, Kylie: You have your whole life to be an adult but only so long to be a kid. And we get it. In the right situations, I try to be as immature as I can sometimes—react to things as if I were 12. You can’t take things too seriously. I just laugh thinking about my dad being a teenager, partying. It’s the funniest thing. And it makes me think—what am I going to be like when I’m 65?”

Kendall has made a very strong name for herself. She’s walked the runways for some of the top high fashion designers: Chanel, Balmain, Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce & Gabbana. She was also recently named one of the 25 most influential teens in 2014 by TIME magazine. Kendall is definitely a young woman to watch and we hope that she enjoys her youth as much as possible.
